Ivanka Trump emerged from observing the Jewish holiday of Shavuot to commemorate the start of LGBT Pride Month 2017, perhaps extending an olive branch to more liberal supporters disappointed she was not able to change her father’s mind on the Paris climate agreement.
“Logging back on after Shavuot, wishing everyone a joyful #Pride2017. This month we celebrate and honor the #LGBTQ community,” Trump tweeted Thursday evening.
People condemned Ivanka for appearing to support the LGBT community when her own father had nominated cabinet members who have a history of taking anti-gay stances, as well as passing laws that threatened the civil rights of the community.
One user suggested that Ivanka’s claim to side with the LGBT community was farcical because she does not have any friends who represent that community. Another user seemed utterly in disbelief over the fact that Ivanka would even post such a tweet.
